    Went here for a Religious Tourism and it was divine. The place is truly solemn and reverent.
    Feels like that any prayer of a sincere heart will be granted by this place.
    Visiting here on weekdays are much more preferable too as lesser people will be around.

    The statue is cool to see, but it's just a statue. It doesn't do or say anything. Can't get anything from it, like all other statues. The story behind the statue is interesting. The area the statue is located in is awesome. Lots of restaurants and places for a drink. Nightlife and things to see and do.

    If you have some time to spare, take a short boat ride to Caohagan Island from Lapu Lapu jetty in Cebu. The island has about 150 local families who make a living by fishing and selling ornaments made from shells. You can buy some fresh seafood and get them cooked by the locals.
    There is a entry fee of 200 php per person with kids charged at 100 php.

    The ride down to the falls is on a motorcycle. Or you can walk it. My advice. Pay for the ride up and down the hill. A few pesos and it's well worth it. The falls are incredible. Water is crisp and cold. Not deep, but still have a great time swimming around. Plenty of places to do photography work. Bring extra clothes to change in or just dry off naturally. This is one of the best places that I've seen. You can also rent a small hut for a afternoon lunch break or just hang out in. The people are super nice and friendly. Definitely worth while trip. Don't miss out on seeing the falls. Well worth the drive and the scenery is awesome.

    It's an awesome day trip! Take a boat from almost anywhere in Moalboal, sit back, relax and enjoy the 25 to 35 minute ride to Pescador Island. It's just a small little outcrop in the middle of the straight between Cebu and Negros. We don't usually go for the Island itself (there's nothing really on it and it is protected), but it is a favorite spot to hang out, snorkel, dive, and enjoy the beautiful coral reefs surrounding it. I spent my 49th birthday out there. We had three boats full of family and just partied!

    Last week, I received a message from my fellow actress, mommy Doris Banaynal on Messenger that I'll be a part of the cast of the upcoming promotional and educational video of Casa Gorordo Museum, which is owned and managed by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Incorporated (RAFI) under the Culture and Heritage focus area since when it opened to the public in the year 1983. I was thrilled to shoot again after almost a year of community quarantine and this is my first film project in this brand new year 2021. A good start for my year.

    We are asked to dramatize and reenact the traditional "pamamanhikan" or "pamalaye" in the Philippines during the eighteen-hundreds of the 19th century. This is usually a formal occasion when the man together with his family members formally asks the woman’s hand in marriage in front of her parents, grandparents and the rest of her family.  Casa Gorordo is the perfect setting of a colonial era house which is known as "balay na tisa" (house with tiled roof) during the Spanish occupation in the country located in the historical district of Parian near Colon Street (the oldest street in the Philippines).

    We have to wear the national dress like the traditional Barong (an embroidered long-sleeved formal shirt for men) and  Filipiniana dress/traje de mestiza (a traditional dress for women) to depict the time period in history.

    I realized it was my first time to get inside the museum. I'm not even aware of the history of the house, but because of the guidance of our script writer-researcher, Mr Renren Tabada Alatraca, we learn to appreciate its interesting facts and trivia that open our senses during the entire shoot. It made us understand the background story of the house that we can apply in our performance as actors as we play each character effectively.

    The museum observed the strict health protocols for the staff, the crew and the cast to follow. We're told to shoot our scenes by batches. Some actors in the other batch weren't with us during the shoot and it was quite a challenge for us to act as if they're with us.

    One of the best place to capture great moments and scenery in the heart of Cebu City. Taoist Temple is one of the exemplary place to visit based on the belief and based on the utmost great view that they do have.

    3 hours drive from Cebu City. When you reach the docking area you will check-in and they will give you an orientation - protocols, but no room keys yet. 10 minutes boat trip to the island. No fancy greetings, you have to walk all the way to their other check-in counter, where keys will be given when available. Note: NOT a good place for elderly or PWD, lots of walking and stairs climbing. They have a golf cart that runs only up to 4pm, after that you have to walk from sand bar back to your room, a good 10 minute walk. They do not provide maps, so you have to navigate by yourself. The lagoon was pretty, but no one was on standby to help us there.
    Food was ok, during breakfast limited choices, no cereals for kids.

    Rooms are big but television and telephone is not working.

    The island is beautiful, serene but they can improve more on their service and amenities.

    For nature lover, this place is perfect for you. It’s a 2 to 3 hours ride from the city and a little walk from the highway, but that long travel is really worth it. Beautiful falls, clear and cold water. For those who love adventure, have fun and enjoy the canyoneering. Recommended place to visit.

    Amazing view of the city lights at night. Place is mostly tidy but some visitors are not responsible with their trash. Nevertheless, the air is good and the view is much better when shared with good company

    We went 3 times from Newtown to buy few souvenirs and electric appliances for our family…
    Unfortunately very dangerous place outside, many troubles with main entrance with wind, you could receive something on your head, no protection net, nothing secure…inside nothing changes since five years, just on second part no lift, very dirty…we had to go SM and Ocean close Cebu bridge to be secure, safe and not in danger.
    Make your choice now!??
